Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge # 47...Flight of Fancy

Happy Saturday everyone, hope you've got better weather than us...we had a really fierce thunderstorm yesterday evening and then hailstones...5 minutes later it was brilliant sunshine...weird! lol!

It's time for another Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and this weeks theme is Flight of Fancy...anything with wings...and the theme has been chosen by my incredibly talented DT buddy Cathy! I don't know why but I had a strong urge to make a Christmas card for this challenge...and I chose to use this stunning fairie digi image from Charmed Cards & Crafts...she is from the Pixie Chicks Collection 1 and she is designed by Louise Brigden the sentiment is from the same set! I coloured with Promarkers and added some glamour dust to the top of her boots, dress, wings and holly wreath on her head...come to think of it does she has 'holly' for hair? lol!

The design papers are also a digi download...from
Shabby Princess and the collection is called 'Holiday 2006.' The ribbon is from my ribbon box. I haven't added any embellies to this card because I couldn't decide what to for now I've just added some faux stitching and a few ickle gems!

I hope you'll come and join us for this challenge and thank you for visiting me today :)

Hi Donna,
I just saw this on the SCSC blog. It is gorgeous! I love the papers and layout and the image is fabulous (I really must get over to Charmed Crafts and get some). You have coloured and glittered her beautifully.
Enjoy the bank holiday weekend.
